Are the Total Number of Drums a variable or constant ?.

i.e. Total Number of Drums = 4.

Or they can vary as 2,3,4,5 etc

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Thanks for your question.  The total number of drums can vary.  Your style of drumming and your comfort level can play a part in this.  As you gain more experience you can experiment and add more drums.  You will find that your drums need to be in the exact same position every time because of how you play.  You also do not need to learn how to read sheet music to be a good drummer.
Hope this helps.
